To be considered for Indigenous awards:
- You must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or have refugee status
- You must be an Indigenous student. UBC uses the term "Indigenous" in lieu of "Aboriginal" as held in the spirit of its use in section 35(2) of the Canadian Constitution, to refer inclusively to members of First Nations, status and non-status, treaty and non-treaty Indians, Métis, and Inuit peoples in Canada, recognizing that many people prefer the terms that are specific and traditional to their communities.
- You must submit the application for intended Indigenous awards
- You must provide supporting documentation if required
- You must be enrolled in a full-time course load studying on the Vancouver campus
- You must meet the eligibility requirements as outlined in UBC’s Regulations Governing University Awards
- You must demonstrate financial need for bursaries.
If you are eligible for bursaries, submit an application to the UBC Bursary Program by the deadline to be considered for UBC General Bursary at the same time. Application to this program is not required for Indigenous Awards consideration.
